Tommy Thomas believed to have committed four offences, says PM

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob says former attorney general Tan Sri Tommy Thomas is believed to have committed four offences based on the investigation into the contents of his memoirs “My Story: Justice In the Wilderness”.

He said the offences could fall under the Penal Code, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act or the Official Secrets Act (OSA).

“We will leave this to the relevant authorities, if it is an MACC case, the MACC will investigate, if it is under the Penal Code, the police will investigate,” he told a press conference after attending a special briefing on the 15th General Election and the northeast monsoon at Bukit Aman here on Tuesday (Oct 25).

Ismail Sabri said the report by the special task force looking into Thomas’ memoir had been declassified and was now available on the website of the legal affairs division of the Prime Minister’s Department.

The publication of the memoir in January 2021 caused public uproar, resulting in some 244 reports lodged by various individuals and groups against Thomas. – Bernama
